    Batman #11 (DC, 1942). One of the most innovative early Batman covers, this spectacular and classic image (by Fred Ray and Jerry Robinson) features the Joker getting "kayoed" by the Caped Crusader against a field of playing cards. This issue features not only a Joker story, but an appearance by the Penguin as well, with artwork by Bob Kane, Jerry Robinson, and George "Inky" Roussos. Light tanning, and small tears at the staples probably account for the grade, but this is still a spectacular copy of this issue, with fresh colors and tremendous eye-appeal. One of the true "knockout" covers of the early Batman run. CGC notes "Centerfold detached at bottom staple only. Tanning interior front/back cover." CGC FN/VF 7.0 Cream to off-white pages. Overstreet 2001 FN 6.0 value = $1,826; NM 9.4 value = $7,000.
